Free Spay or Neuter Surgeries Available
The Big Fix for Big D initiative is a multi-year effort of community partners to spay or neuter tens of thousands of pets in Dallas to significantly diminish numbers of unwanted litters, with the ultimate goal of reducing animal euthanasias at Dallas Animal Services.
Through the Big Fix for Big D initiative, the City of Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center (DAS), Spay Neuter Network, Metroplex Animal Coalition (MAC) and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Texas (SPCA of Texas), will offer spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and registration for Free.
Launched in June 2012, the Big Fix for Big D project in its first year focused on owned dogs and cats and feral/free roaming cats in 18 Dallas zip codes located south of I-30. In the second year of Big Fix for Big D, the partners offer free spay or neuter surgeries for owned animals and free-roaming cats in 8 Dallas zip codes for free. The goal is to decrease animal intakes at Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center by 30% after three years.
